In 2012, Al Lopez and Jose Lopez founded LAT Investments, an investment firm, to serve alongside their existing residential real estate services. After 11 years in residential real estate it was clear that the company had more to offer their clients’ growing real estate needs. In their initial stages, they managed a $150M portfolio of distressed bank-owned assets and rapidly developed invaluable partnerships with investors. After the effective disposition of the portfolio the investors were advised to place their interest in commercial properties which continued their positive returns.
A Pursuit for Higher Returns
LAT Investments soon graduated from a real estate agent role and served more effectively as an investment consultant and advisory firm. LAT Investments became a resourceful tool, adding value to the commercial transactions that the company was involved in at a real estate broker/agent capacity. At first, LAT Investments focused on their clients’ existing real estate portfolio and identified assets that could be repositioned to obtain a higher return. Some assets were refinanced and the proceeds reinvested for a better return, while others were sold to improve the quality of their portfolio. Next, LAT Investments assisted vacant land owners in modifying their land designation from merely raw land to fully-entitled projects, thereby increasing its marketable value. Year-to-date LAT Investments has generated over $200M worth of equity growth and value in their investors’ assets. A reputation of honesty, ethics, and a consistent record of great returns are what prompt their clients to include them in their next real estate investment.
LAT Investments has a great sense of the market’s direction, focusing on the study of relevant economic data. The use of economic factors and familiarity with the commercial market has kept their group ahead of the curve, promoting superior investment strategies tailored to the investor’s goals. This method serves the needs of the savvy and novice investors in all property types. LAT Investments is deeply involved in investments assets such as mobile home parks, flagship hotels, large-scale industrial warehouses, commercial buildings, and apartment complexes, as well as ground-up developments from permits to completion.
To properly serve its investors’ needs, LAT Investments formed a core group of specialized individuals to effectively carry out small to large scale projects. The team is comprised of: a full-time in-house legal counsel, acquisitions and dispositions managers, valuation specialists, financial analysts, and a competent market research department. Through this group effort, the firm creates an investment proposal that communicates clearly the investment summary, its process, and realistic returns. They also partner with real estate professionals, consultants, architects, and contractors to bring knowledge and support to their investors’ projects and investments.
A full-service investment firm that aligns real estate investments with its investor’ needs.
